Thanks, Alex! It's one of my favourite places.

You could have read a book, when I took this photo. It was beautiful and unusually warm on 03.Nov.2005. Today we've had around 4 ° Celsius.

Greetings, May

Wonderful shot May, Send us some of that cold. It's gona be too hot tomorrow here 31C


May M. B. (Swissmay) on October 26, 2007

Thank you very much, Palmina! When I took that photo two years ago, it was around 20° Celsius. This year it's much colder, so I'd be happy to exchange some of your 31°. :) Anyway they promised some 16° for tomorrow.

Have a nice day!

Salut Swissmay! Très belles couleurs! Le Thunersee est vraiment spectaculaire! Bonne journée, Giulio

Greetings May, Wonderful shot. Such a beautiful location. The next civic project should be to replace the yellow and purple benches with traditional cast iron and wood ;-). Thanks for sharing such a beautiful lake.



May M. B. (Swissmay) on October 26, 2007

Thank you Rich for you visit to the lake of Thun and your comment!

Rich, I am sure, nobody would want cast iron benches. Our tradition has been wooden benches and those you see are the official, traditional wooden benches in all Switzerland. They are functional, nice to sit on, timeless, clean and look cheerful! :)

Greetings, May

What a treat it would be to sit on those lovely colourful benches and drink in that view May! :D

The colours of autumn are lovely against that blue sky. :D

Wunderschön! DAS ist Herbst! Grüße aus Bayern!

May M. B. (Swissmay) on October 28, 2007

Bea, Roland und Kojak! Herzlichen Dank für euren Besuch und die freundlichen Kommentare!

Bea, das war sogar so warm vor 2 Jahren um die Zeit, dass man sich wirklich entspannen und lesen konnte.

Roland, ich lebe zwar nicht am Thunersee, aber ja, schön ist es schon!

Kojak, ja, das empfinde ich auch so, zumindest, was die schönere Seite des Herbstes betrifft.

Ganz liebe Grüsse an euch, May

Wallace and Pam, thank you so much for your visit and kind comments and sorry about the belated answer. Panoramio seems to have some problems.

Giulio et Sylvie, merci beaucoup pour avoir visité ma place et pour votre commentaire!

Oui, je suis d'accord! C'est vraiment ma place preferée près du lac de Thun. :)

Mes meilleures salutations, May
